We feel like congratulating King  Edward on this happy termination of the disgraceful  exhibitions that have taken place in the British  Columbia Legislature during the past three or four  months, and we certainly would regard it as a matter  for general rejoicing if every member of the Legislature would follow the Premier to London, and remain away altogether.  Thk Toronto   Telegram,   previous   to the   Ontario  election, had   the following editorial, which   tells  a  condition of affairs that has heen only   too apparent  in   Canada   for   years*:    ** The   electors   in   every  Ontario constituency   are  honest  and   unpurchaseable to the extent of   at least   ninety five per   cent.  The pity of it is   that on the whole the   incorruptible  ninety-five per "cent, is  unchanging   in its   division  upon party lines.     The   result is that   the   remnant  of five per cent, which is corrupt or changeable is the  real king maker in almost every Ontario constituency.  The honest Liberal arises   in his  might��� he  might  just as   well   stay   in   bed  all .day���and    marches  proudly   to the polls to  vote   Liberal, as  his   father  voted before him.     The honest Conservative gets up  in the strength of his integrity���and   he might   ju*t  ae  well stay in bed���and    marches to    the polls   to  vote Tory   as his   father    voted before   him.     The  ��< doubtful voter stays  in bed   until   he knows   why  he is  getting   up, and he   goes lo  the polls to    vote  according to the terms he  can get for the delivery of  his vote on a spot c<tsh basis.      And it is   the doubt-  ful voter who change*   the result in   every changeable   constituency,   and who   makes and    unmakes  governments.      It is a paradox but yet a   truth that  the    great   cause   of   corruption    is    the   f.tct that  ninety-five    per     cent     of     the    voters    in    every  constituency  are   incorruptible.     These   ninety-five  per cent, of honest  men,   Liberal   and  Conservative  in almo.-t equal numbers, kill each others' votes and  thus simplify the work of buying up a  constituency.  If all the etectors in any constituency were purchase-  able the elections would be purified by   the'inability  of either party    to   command    enough money to    go  round.      Corruption   is encouraged by the   fact that  few voters are corrupt and    that a  parly can    buy a  constituency by buying up these few voters.    Friends  and fellow-countrymen divide   themselves into   two  hostile Grit and Tory camps   and   go on for   generation    after  [(generation    killing    each others    votes.  Thus they enable the   machine   to   control the  constituency by spending; enough money to buy up  the  five per cent, of <% floaters" who will  vote either   way  if   they get   a  sufficient   inducement.      If   all    the  voters were corrupt elections   would   bo  purified   by  the imposibility of bribing  everybody.      l(   none of  the voters were corrupt no   party   would be   able  to  use money to    the    disadvantage   of another   party.  The    party    system   employs  honest    Liberals    and  honest Conservatives in the unprofitable    exercise of  killing each others    vote-*.      The   politicians   realize  that the vast    majority  of   electors    vote  for    party  names, which merely signify the  same   upper/to   for  office.     They realize that  this   majority  h eo tin-*  changeable io   its   preference for   one party or   the7"  other that it can   neither be   reached   by   argument^  nor boodle.   The best people in the  country destroy *;  their political influence by their divisions,   and put V-  virtuaily all electoral power in the   hands of   voters U  whose preferences can be changed by their  own pre- ":  judices or other people's money.'1  The order issued by the Britisft army authorities  that in all coming wars 'and other manoeuvres of  such officers as are mounted shall not carry swords.  Instead, they shall carry carhins, which are useful  in actual warfare, whereas the sword is, and long  has been, of no possible use except to dismounted  officers in the melee that follows a charge with fixed  bayonets���a charge such as will never again be  made unless the armies of the world resume the use  of the oid-fashioi ed, short-range firearms, which  enabled the enemy to get within bayonet range before they could all be killed or wounded. Even in  the United States civil war, when bayonet charges  were frequent, there were comparatively few infantry  officers, no matter how brave, that ever had occasion  to use the sword in battle, for the revolver was more  effective for attack and at If-protection. As to that,  there were many effective cavalry regiments in  which not one man in a hundred had ever used his  sabre for the purpose for which it was designed. But  what is to be of the** pride, pomp and circumstance  of glorious war'* if armies are to be divested of  everything that is showy? Brilliant uniforms are no  longer worn in the field, even by soldiers on general  camp dutv;   line-officers'  sa-hes   have  disappeared  ���  "     " '<'r'  and   epaulettes   are   seldom   seen   except  on   the  shoulders of militia officers.     In the Smth   African  war the British officers   even covered   or  discolored  their buttons, and carried and used rifles, so that the  Boers might not distinguish them   from   their  men,  yet they fought no    less    bravely   nor were the   less  obevedancl respected by   Tommy   Atkins.     Gayly-  colored   braid   and cord   is   still   worn   by   army  musicians, but in   action these   useful   persons   are  generally kept in the rear of the fighting line, whore  thev are inconspicuous.     The " soul-stirring drum  in held in light esteem   by   military economists, for  the bugle is quite competent to take its  place with-  without neglect   of the  bugle's  own  special  duties.  Many experienced   soldiers   believe that  even regimental colors will never again be taken into action,  for despite their  sentimental  significance and  their  service as a   rallying point   they   are  the   favorite  targets  ofthe  enemy's   best, marksmen,  and ho increase the change of a regimental line being  broken  at its centre,     They also lessen the fighting   force oj  an army,   for each color-bearer is a carefully aeleeii  man,   and  deserving   of a   better   use   than  to   ��  specially shot   at   while never   being permiUetii  shoot.      But, if all that is visibly  attractive is to oo  banished from armies, what will be   tbe effect upcu  the classen from which recruits   are   ���iimuf .  \_v  bablv fewer men will enlist through love of d ��pwg  but this will   mean   fewer   light-headed  you in    ^  desert at    the   first   opportunity.      M"[\m\*���ti  have become ho frightfully   costly that thev   M" ^  afford to   accept   any   human   material ot  c        hllt  quality, nor to maintain any   old-time custom  can lessen their effectiveness.

Lift evening beheld   his audience  young and old.  They were laughing, sober,   moved   to tears, alter-  1 tuiely.     And often apparently ** all for nothing" so  I \u a* the  description  of the ordinary individual  I wuuid \ie concerned.     And yet in tbe little story of  Hughie Murray   and bis confidence in his mother  w\ the beautiful character of that mother, which is  *en through the boy, though scarcely hinted  at the  ihe confidence   reposed   in her   boy and the   noble  character of Ranald Macdonald are bits of  human  nature which we   very  often see,  but which  it  require* the hand of a master to paint.  in tbe reward given, the   first scene portrayed is  die old Glengarry echool-hoate, a log building "with  the plaster which bad   the curious  habit of  falling  ��ut during the summer months  no one knew  how;  somehow tbe boles always   appeared   on ihe boys'  *ide, and these were found most useful, for  looking  "ui- of   the   window was   forbidden.   The   teacher,  M Archibald M.unro, a born   commander,  the only  master who had been able  to   control tbe   stubborn  tampers of the young giants who attended the schools  during the summer months, without an  appeal  to  the trustees,  was   also described, together with  the  way    in    which    he    had    conquered    and    reduced to   reason big   Bob Fraser,   the bully of   the  school.     Then Hughie Murray, ihe minister's boy,  appears on   the scene,   and his remarkable   gifts in  spelling were referred to,     A spelling  match in the  ftchoolhouse was described in so natural a light thai  the audience, under the charm of ihe gifted pctrtrayer,  almost    imagined    themselves   silent    spectators.  There   were   two   sides  with   captains, and   these  < a plains gave out   words, back   and forward, to   be  spelled.     The opening was wiih words of the ABC  denomination such as"ox" ���'in," etc.    The audience  was convulsed when little Johnny Aird spelled ''is1'  M in."   Many similar amusing details ended disastrously  to Hughie   Murray's  side.     His captain,  ThoB. Finch, was caught on the word u heifer" which  the   opposing    captain     pronounced    u hypher."  Hughie   Murray quickly noticed ihe deception and  pave the   correct   spelling.     But ii   was too   late.  before Thomas Finch could  speak  further, the d<ft~  <        minion was given against  him   and ihe  vanquished  captain  only admitted his defeat wiih a  grumbling  I        ^>mplaint.  i The noted author then went on io paint a boyish  t Si1*" i  U.MMI  few.  :  if   pi  ,        He vividly  portrayed a  romp through the woods.

No doubt this meeting will  attract a large number here, so it will be seen that  this will be a splendid opportunity to make ourselves better known. The meeting in Nelson  should also encourage aquatic sports at home,  something also to he desired, In connection with  the regaita there will also be several other sporting  events,such as lacrosse, baseball, rock-drilling contest, etc. Everything possible should be done  to make the event a great success.  Some one has been inquiring as to what it is boys  and girls read nowadays, and the warden of St.  Andrew's college, Bradford,, answering for his own  boy*, says the younger boys read Baliantyne and  Henty; those of the middle form, Weyman and  Kipling; while the oldest hoys concern themselves  with Emerson and Carlyle. As to hoard schools,  two boys only at St. Austell have read Scott and  Dickens during the las* year, while Burton��on-Trent  has neglected both these author*-; but at Gloucester,  where Scott is "very low down in popular favor."  Dickens is first favorite The giris of Plumstead  find Soott and Dickens alike " loo long and loo dry/*  iw��imS"*.  |NV<|W"l'iV':.t.v1",^. --j-i.'.,"'_C\1i  I..- -,: mi'.'-'  u. ��� ���-tv   *\\  J.-.,... j;  ",v..  . ���   T.w���.1*\l  f'V* ' v.; ', A- A..��\ti\W  jail ��i *%������� ttm    �����.-���"*��   Ii*���   .1  I  IIMI.   ���������*�����������   ��������!   ���._���������������* "  A good story is told concerning the Duke of Cambridge, who some years ago called upon a London  photographer for the purpose of having hi** portrait  taken. Rumor has it that the operator, instead of  Wing awed hy such condescension on the part of a  near relative of our late Queen, treated the old Duke  wiih an air of familiarity which more surprised than  piqued the ex-Commander-in-Chief. He quietly  submitted to be posed, and obediently followed the  instructions of the photographer, until that creature  seeing the Duke was * earing his hat, quietly removed  the headgear and absent-mindedly put it on his own  head. This wan too much for ihe aged Duke, who,  jumping up from hi�� s-eat, shouted: "This is coming  it a bit to strong, sir,0 and walked out of the studio.  When passing Cherbourg, on route from South  Africa to London, Mr. Rhodes observed several vessels  of the French Channel Squadron drawn up in line to  salute theex-EmpresH Eugenie's vaeht. The French-  men, who were spread out on the yards of their vessels, shouted, "Vive rhnperatrie.'!" and the captain  of the vessel on which Mr Rhodes was a passenger  wishing to show hiu respect to the Km press, got his  men ready to salute, hut in the short time at his disposal ho could not school his crew to repeat the  French words,    "fell them to say 'Beef, lemons, and  cheese/* suggested Mr. Rhodes playfully, and, to hid  utter amazement, the yacht was greeted with a deafening yell of "Beef, lemons, and cheese!"

The workmen digging the foundations for the enlargement of a religious building in Turin discovered,  at the depth of about six meters below the soil, a  number of articles of great archaeological interest.  The most important is a hollow bronze head, life  size, and a masterpiece of art, in excellent preservation. The hair, the ears, and the eyes show traces  of gilding. It is supposed, from comparison with  other heads of the fame period, to represent  Tiberius.  Watkin-Miller, in ompany with Owen Sadly,  will he heard at the Nelson Opera House next  Thursdav evening.  "All woodsmen know," says Paul Martin, "that  pine needles grow in pairs in the same sheath and  that when placed side hy side the sharp pointed  ends are exactly opposite. Fasten these two needles  together hy a thread quite near the pointed end, and  you will have a pen with two sharp nibs, ready to  write whatever you please. As a pen holder insert  the pen into a hollow twig, letting the points etick  out about a centimeter (half inch). Dip your pen  into an inkstand, letting it remain for a short time  in the ink. The ink will rise by capillarity in tho  tube formed by the junction of the two needles and  will form a reserve of liquid sufficient for the writing of twenty lines. Tho pen is fine, ��implo and  antiruating."

L    The burglar wheeled around
and   confronted   the   gaze of   un-
frightened  eye?.     Then   his hand
went to his hip pocket;
•* Are you a coward  as well as  a
thief?1' she asked, scornfully,     He
dropped his hand to  his side,  and
stood undecided.
" Put them back?" She pointed
an imperious finger at the dressing
Out of a capacious pocket the
burglar drew a rope of pearls, and
threw it down amid the confusion
oi brushes and combs and powder
puffs and laces and ribbons.
As he did so he caught sight of
a card on top ot the jewel case.
"To my bride-to-be5' was written
on it, above the name of a well-
known   man   of   millions—-an   old
" Is that all ?"• asked the lady.
She sat up on the couch. Her
pale blue gown fell about her in
straight folds, the red-gold braids
of her hair touched the floor. A
photograph slid from her lap and
lay face upward on the rug —a
photograph worn with much handling.
The burglar reached inside his
coat, and fished out a strip of blue
ribbon on which glittered five
diamond butterflies.
The lady    drew    a long    breath.
" Oh,     those!"     she     said,      and
snatched them  from him,   eagerly.
" Is   there    nothing   el*-e?M    she
again demanded.
" That's all/' repeated the burglar.
Hut tbe lady continued her
search. Presently she turned
around and faced him.
" Where in the ring?'' she
questioned, sharply.
The burglar was embarrassed.
"Oh, that." he said, nervously,
" that cheap little thing?"
11 It's   worth   more  to   me   than
all   the   rent!" 'she   cried, and   the
pearls    dropped    at   her  f«*.et,    unheeded,  as   she   crossed   the   room
and came to when* be mood on  the
hearth rug.
" Give it to mo!"
He* opened his  band, and   it lay
In the palm—-a little thin gold
ring, set with a half-dozen cheap
blue   stones.
She took it from him, and
slipped it  on her finger,   where  it
fitted tightly.
Then she sank into a deep chair,
and motioned him to another. He
seated himself on the extreme
edge and looked at her uncomfortably.
" Why did you keep that ringt
when    there    were    others     more
*4 I wanted to give it away,"
he blurted out. *' I didn't think
vou would hunt for it—it  was   so
'* To a  girl?" she   asked,   softly.
He nodded, and then they both
looked into the fire.
" You love her?" said the   lady,
at last.
His   face    blazed.     u  Ye*,1*   he
answered, stoutly.
" Does she know that vou are
a thief?" Her clear eyes were
He moved    restlessly,   and    his
face hardened.
" Yes," he said again.
41 And vet she loves  vou?"
Another nod, as a frown settled
darkly over his visa'ge.
Into her eyes there came a look
of contempt.
" She rnu-t V>e a strange woman,"
she said, coldly.
11 To love a thief?" There was
danger in the con t red led voice and

yet men have loved vou!"
Her eyes looked straight into
his, surprised, wrathful.
" What do you mean?" she de-
He laughed, recklessly.
*• What do you give for those?"
His arm swept out toward the
jewel covered table. " When I
steal your pearls and diamonds 1
get something for nothing. When
you take them from that
old man, what do you give him in
" How dare you! I low dare
you!" she cried. She sprang to
ber feet and paced the room.
Her foot touched the photograph,
